Linda Yaccarino, the newly appointed CEO of Twitter, seems to have a surprising connection to Dogecoin, the meme-inspired cryptocurrency that was heavily endorsed by her predecessor, Elon Musk. Yaccarino follows several Twitter accounts related to Dogecoin and its spin-off Shiba Inu, including the official accounts of both coins and some of their prominent developers and supporters. While Yaccarino has not publicly expressed her views on crypto or how it may fit into Twitter’s plans, her interest in Dogecoin suggests that she may share Musk’s enthusiasm for meme coins.
Elon Musk, who remains the owner of Twitter, has been a vocal advocate for Dogecoin and has hinted at integrating it into the social media platform. He also expressed his desire to make Twitter payments more accessible and open-source, which aligns with some of the core principles of cryptocurrency. Dogecoin, which started as a joke in 2013, has become one of the most popular and volatile cryptocurrencies with a loyal fan base that often rallies behind Musk’s tweets and endorsements.
Shiba Inu, created in 2020 as a “Dogecoin killer,” is another meme coin that has gained popularity and attention in recent months. It claims to be an experiment in decentralized community building and has launched a decentralized exchange platform called ShibaSwap.
Yaccarino’s interest in Dogecoin and Shiba Inu indicates that she is open to exploring new possibilities and innovations in the cryptocurrency space. It remains to be seen how she will approach the crypto as a new Twitter leader.
